Senior Awarded Grant to Present at National Conference

Posted on October 30, 2013.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 30, 2013 – High Point University senior Gavin Coombs will present his research at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in Nashville, Tenn.

Coombs was awarded a student travel grant from HPU to present at the conference. He will present findings from research he did over the summer at Johns Hopkins University on the life cycle of the herpes virus.

“If we can understand the life cycle, we have a better chance of finding a drug to treat it,” explains Coombs.

Coombs plans to continue his research at Johns Hopkins after graduation, and eventually going onto graduate school.

“The opportunity to present this research at a national conference will definitely enhance my resume, in addition to the other opportunities provided by High Point University,” says Coombs.

The conference will be held from Nov. 13 – 16.
